Eddie Murphy "wife" Split

Eddie Murphy wedding bora bora

So after weeks since their New Years’ “wedding” on an island near Bora Bora, Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds have decided to split, and never make the marriage legal. (The ceremony in Bora Bora was a ‘spiritual’ one not a legal one)

Eddie has been married before and he has a baby with Spice Girl Mel Brown, Tracey was previously married to producer musician Babyface.

has the details

“After much consideration and discussion, we have jointly decided that we will forego having a legal ceremony as it is not necessary to define our relationship further,” Murphy and Edmonds tell PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “While the recent symbolic union in Bora Bora was representative of our deep love, friendship and respect that we have for one another on a spiritual level, we have decided to remain friends.”

The couple exchanged vows in a sunset ceremony on New Year’s Day on a private island off Bora Bora in French Polynesia. But, according to a source, the honeymoon got off to a rocky start.

“Eddie started yelling at Tracey in front of people,” says one of Edmonds’s wedding guests. “He did it on a few occasions and it was very embarrassing.”

To add fuel to this fire, Media Takeout said that the two would never marry due to the alimony Tracey Edmonds receives from ex-husband producer/musician Babyface. Looks like they were right!

Or she can always hang with his ex-es. It seems they get along great!
